Gift/upgrade for in laws?

My ILs are Disney fanatics and are taking their (3) adult children and all their families on a 4 night cruise in July. We are looking for a good christmas gift for them that can be associated with the cruise - originally thinking about getting a cabana for them on castaway cay
but for various reasons this is not going to be
happening (too many people, not really excited about this etc) Any ideas suggestions ? I can't find much on gift ideas. They aren't big on wine for instance, (no delivery options to their state room that would work for them) or spas so that's really out.
We will be on board for 4th July - any ideas how to find out if there are any special extras we can take part in? I have no idea if the cruise line works the same way as WDW.

Thanks in advance!

Book A palo dinner for them and get the photo packAge so you can make them a fabulous memory book of the whole family. Make sure to get one or two whole family pics. You can have the kids hold up a sign that says we love you grandma and grandpa in one. Can you book a great excursion for them?

Those are two really good ideas. I was going to suggest that you reserve a table for them at Palo or Remy, but I like the photo idea even better. There will probably be tons of photos for your group, and compiling them all into a photo book would be an amazing keepsake. If you use Snapfish or Shutterfly (or one of the other, similar sites), you could create a beautiful book with captions and a custom cover for them. Sounds like a fun trip!

Thanks!! I hadn't considered a photo album so I will bring this idea up. I like this!

I had thought about an activity but they aren't very active so I'm not sure if there is anything that would appeal to them.

The whole idea of this cruise for them is being with their children and grandchildren. So perhaps a photo package etc.

I vote for the photo package/photo book idea, too. My parents did the same thing for our family last year. We pooled everybody's photos and made a photo book for them. Great memories!

They are great memories. You can make one on disney's website (even on board I believe). If you buy the cd, you can use your own candida ruth their shots as well. Did one for my parents and they loved it. Now that my dad has passed, we all treasure it
